Flyers up 2 games to none!  Eastern Conference finals, here we come.

Same for the Lightning!

EDIT:  Who just swept the habs and can take a few days to rest up for the conference finals!

What happened?  Everyone around here just stop watching the playoffs?

I guess that was bound to happen as teams are eliminated... but I've still got lots to be excited about.  :)

yeah, it's bound to happen. i'm still watching the games - no matter who plays, 'cause i just enjoy watching hockey - but my avalanche are just about done. i have little hope left that they can win 3 in a row against the sharks. the sharks just came out and completely overwhelmed the avs.

oh well, there's always next year :)

Maybe not.  :(  Now tied up 2-2.  I think this series is going seven.  And that's going to really hurt whoever wins.  A tough, physical series and then having to play a speedy and restful TB team.

Well, Philly put on an ass-whupin today...

But, they lost their goalie it would seem (anyone hear what the injury was?) and game 6 is up North...

This series has game 7 written all over it.

And I hope it does go to 7 - so the winner can be even more gassed when they play Tampa.  :)

Still no word on Esche's injury.  Not a bad backup goalie to have though in Burke.  He's had his good times.  

I agree completely about game 7.  Belfour always comes back from a shellacking with a standout performance.  Almost always with a shutout for that matter.

Good to see Detroit eliminated.  With NJ already gone, it's nice to see some new talent win the Cup.  Hopefully it's the Flyers ;D

Should be the Flames and the Sharks vs the Lightning and the ???  Interesting year in Hockey no doubt, Flames have been out of contention for so long (last cup in '89???) and the Sharks and Lighting are virtual newbies.  My old standby of rooting against teams who have never won a championship before my team does will hold, I'll be pulling for the FLyers/Leafs or the Flames.  And if they meet probably the Eastern Conference team

Prediction:

Flames win the cup in 2004.  

No new collective bargaining agreement is reached in 2004/2005.  Owners relent midway through 2005/2006 season.  Several teams fold, one of which is the defending Stanley Cup champion Flames.

Bettman still thinks everything is ok.

I'd love to see the Flames vs. Toronto in the Cup Finals.  

Go Canada!  Teach those southern boys how the NHL was meant to be played!  

I'll go with Calgary over San Jose in 6 games and Toronto over Bolts in 6 games (after Toronto passes Philly in 7 games).

Then I'll go Toronto over Calgary in 7 games.

But again, I'm crappy making picks like this.

Yeah, great to see Calgary doing well. Not that I like to think this way, but I'm not so sure SJ will make it past the Avs. They've looked a little timid the last two games. Yes, they have two more chances to do it, but Colorado can smell blood. Plus, as much as I've always rooted for the Sharks, I'm scared to think of how this town would react if SJ actually managed to win the Cup. We live about a block and a half from SJ home ice, and I really don't want some drunken hockey fans (or any fans, for that matter) hooting and hollerin' outside our house at midnight....or worse. :-X The neighborhood's crappy enough as it is.

And the flyers advance....

Tampa vs. Philly - I'm hoping for a repeat of the outcome of the last time their respective football teams met one playoff round from the finals...  :)
